Bug#586227: busybox lacks support for mke2fs option; needed b/c for a recovery evironment

Package: busybox
Version: 1:1.14.2-2
Severity: normal

Presently there is unresolved breakage in mkfs for ext2 FS, due to some
churn in where libraries have been moved, and the absence of a test of mkfs

The fix may have been made and is working through the unstable timeout but
then again it may not be a full fix.  Please provide mkfs wiithin busybox to
permit a workaround through the suggested path:
